Micralax Rectum Micro Enema - 12 Pack x 5ml


Checked By

What is the Micralax Micro Enema?

Micralax Micro Enema is an at-home enema which works as a laxative, clearing your lower bowel and making it easier to pass stools. It works quickly, offering quick and effective relief to uncomfortable constipation.


Why would I need an enema?

One of the most common reasons for needing an enema is constipation. If you’re struggling to go to the toilet or are having less than three bowel movements every week, you could be constipated. Those who are constipated could turn to an enema as a last-resort treatment for constipation, using it to clear the bowel.

Another common reason for needing an enema is needing to clear your bowel before an x-ray or other examination.


How does the Micralax Micro Enema work?

Micralax Micro Enema uses the active ingredients sodium citrate and sodium alkylsulphoacetate, which work together to create a laxative effect. It causes water to be drawn into your lower bowels, softening your stools and making them much easier to pass.


How to use this product.

Micralax Micro Enema will normally work within 5 – 15 minutes, so make sure that you are near a toilet before using this product. To begin, lie down on your side with your knees drawn up towards your stomach, or sit on the toilet if you prefer. Twist the cap off of the rube and squeeze a drop of medicine out onto the nozzle. Insert the full length of the nozzle into your back passage and then gently squeeze the tube until it is empty. Pull the nozzle out, continuing to squeeze the tube so medicine isn’t drawn back into it. Wait for the laxative to work.


How much of this product should I use?

The usual dosage of this product is one tube at a time and you should never use more than this. If you accidentally use too much of this product, speak to your doctor or go to your nearest A&E department as soon as possible. If your constipation has not improved after a few days of treatment, you should speak to your doctor as soon as possible.


Why do I need to answer questions to buy this product?

You do not need a prescription for Micralax Micro Enemas, however, you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist-4-U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that the Micralax Micro Enema is the best choice for you.


When should the Micralax Micro Enema not be used?

Micralax Micro Enemas should not be used by children under the age of three. Do not use the Micralax Micro Enema if you are allergic to sodium citrate, sodium alkylsulphoacetate, or any of the other listed ingredients. Micralax Micro Enema is not suitable for those who have inflammatory bowel disease.


Does this product have any side effects?

Like all medicines, Micralax Micro Enemas can have side effects, although not everyone gets them. Most people find that Micralax Micro Enema does not cause any side effects, but if you use this product too much then it may cause diarrhoea or loss of fluid. If you experience any side effects while using this product, speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist right away. For more information about reporting the side effects of medication, please see the MHRA’s Yellow Card Scheme.

Returns Information

Customers can read our full returns policy by clicking here

Don’t you just hate blockages? Whether it is in the nose and you struggle to breathe through it and smell, or whether it is a traffic jam caused by an accident that leaves you stuck on the road, they are a pain.


The same can be said about constipation, a simple blockage in the digestive system that can cause a lot of problems. To find the solution to constipation, first, you need to know the cause.

Micralax enemas are rectal laxatives for relieving mild to moderate constipation. They are for rectal use only – this means that they are inserted into the back passage. Micralax enemas are used to empty the back passage of stool which encourages the bowel to empty.
